Tarifa, a beautiful Cádiz town located on the southern coast of Spain, right on the southernmost point of the European continent. With a rich history, beautiful beaches, and delicious gastronomy, Tarifa is the perfect destination for those looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and the opportunity to immerse themselves in Andalusian culture.

One of Tarifa’s biggest attractions are its beaches, which are famous for their beauty and for being ideal for water sports such as kitesurfing and windsurfing.

Tarifa’s gastronomy is a delicious blend of Mediterranean and Andalusian flavours, with dishes such as red Almadraba tuna, Tarifa cabbage, chicharrón de Cádiz and tortillitas de camarones (shrimp omelettes). In addition, the region’s wines are famous for their quality and unique flavour.

BiBo Beach House, Dani García

Since 2019, Tarifa has the most coastal BiBo of all. Dani García’s beach restaurant with more rhythm brings the travelling cuisine to the beach of Valdevaqueros. A varied menu with his classics and top hits such as the oxtail brioche and the marinated whole fried sea bass. You can’t miss the “Nutella to Die For” and the delicious cocktails on the menu.

When lunch is over, the chill out area is the best complement to enjoy the most special afternoon. The most intimate and spectacular sunset in Tarifa is from BiBo with the sun falling over the dune of Valdevaqueros. 

In short, Tarifa is an ideal holiday destination for those looking for an authentic experience of Andalusian culture, beautiful beaches, delicious gastronomy, and outdoor activities. With so many interesting things to do and see, it is no wonder that Tarifa has become one of the most popular destinations on the southern coast of Spain.

If there is one thing that characterizes Italy worldwide, it is its gastronomy and its people’s passion for food. So much so that even the Italians have a saying that goes: “Mangiare per vivere e non vivere per mangiare”, in other words, you must eat to live, not live to eat. 

With this premise, Alelí, Dani García’s Italian-accented restaurant in marbella, hosted a new edition of the days that pay tribute to the gastronomy of the transalpine country with the help of the Marbella chef and other great prescribers of Italian cuisine. After the inauguration in February with Matías Perdomo, and again under the name “Dani García e Fratelli”, on 29 and 30 April they had the honors of having the chef of the three Michelin starred restaurant Da Vittorio

As Dani García proudly says: “To have one of the best restaurants in Italy in Marbella and in Alelí is a real pleasure. Also, to be able to make the Paccheri, so well-known in his restaurant, with Enrico, in my restaurant, was a pleasure and a delight for the guests”. Together with Enrico Cerea, Da Vittorio’s executive chef, he created a very homogeneous menu, interspersed with dishes from Alelí and the guest restaurant. A real festival of flavours that diners will never forget. 

This menu consisted of a torta croccante di tartufo as an aperitif, together with Aleli dishes such as vitello tonnato “al contrario” prepared especially for the occasion, as well as risotto al tartufo, porchetta di agnello and the traditional tiramisu. Da Vittorio cooked spaghetto di tono, plin carbonaro and the famous paccheri alla Vittorio. A spectacular menu that left no one indifferent.

The gastronomic proposal was accompanied by two unique pairing options: one Italian style and the other premium, by Dom Pérignon. The prestigious champagne accompanied the dinner in a special way, perfectly pairing each and every one of the dishes. 

Thus, “Dani García e Fratelli” is the result of the Marbella chef’s admiration for his counterparts in Italy, a reflection of the good work and passion for the traditional cuisine of the transalpine country. With Da Vittorio and his three stars, attendees witnessed a unique Alelí for two exclusive nights, featuring the best Italian produce and the technique of the greatest experts in this cuisine, all without leaving Marbella.

Bluefin tuna is one of the most highly prized fish due to its flavour and texture, and traditional fishing tecnique uded. The Almadraba technique is a tradition on the Andalusian coast.

The Almadraba is a traditional fishing technique used to catch enormous quantities of bluefin tuna on their annual migration through the Mediterranean Sea. This technique consists of placing a labyrinth-shaped net in the sea, where the tuna is trapped and hoisted aboard the boats.

The Almadraba fishing season is usually in Spring, and during this time the famous “Fiesta del Atún” is held in the Andalusian towns of Barbate, Conil, Tarifa and Zahara de los Atunes, where A tribute is paid to this highly prized product.

Bluefin tuna is considered a delicacy due to its flavour and texture and is highly prized by haute cuisine chefs. This delicacy can be enjoyed in many restaurants in the area, where traditional dishes such as the tuna tartar. You can also assist the culinary ritual of the “ronqueo” of the tuna, wich consists of the cutting up of the fish and separating its different sections.

In short, bluefin tuna caught using the traditional Almadraba technique is a culinary delight that forms part of the gastronomic tradition of the Andalusian coast. Its flavour and texture are unique, and it is highly appreciated by chefs and lovers of good food.

30 tuna for 30 days

In the Dani García Group we once again pay special tribute to tuna this year with the 30 tunas for 30 days. 

In the restaurants BiBo (Marbella, Madrid and Tarifa) and Lobito de Mar (Marbella and Madrid) there is a special tuna menu with exquisite dishes from the 2nd to 31st May. 

Tasting this delicacy is a delight for everyone. 

Ronqueo BiBo Tarifa 2023

After Dani Garcia’s success in the 2022 ronqueos, this year Tarifa will have this art on the shores of the Atlantic. On the 25th of May at 18:30h Gadira will conduct a ronqueo of a wild tuna in the restaurant’s chill out area.

When it is over, Dani García will do a show cooking with parts of the tuna that you can cook at home. 

End of the evening tasting the product in a tuna-based cocktail dinner will be the finishing touch to a unique and unforgettable evening.

One parcel, one wine, one ingredient. The cornerstone of Krug’s savoir-faire is individuality; the art of understanding that each plot, vinified individually, is in itself a unique ingredient in the creation of Krug Champagnes. That is why, each year, Maison Krug pays tribute to one ingredient and the pleasures it reveals when paired with a glass of Krug Grande Cuvée or Krug Rosé. The aim is to invite chefs from Krug Embassies around the world to explore the limitless potential of this single ingredient in an inspiring culinary adventure. 

For 2023, this Single Ingredient is the lemon, and to celebrate it has teamed up with chef Dani García’s new omakase bar concept, Kemuri, to offer an exclusive tasting menu with the best of the highest level Japanese cuisine and a high level liquid proposal. In this way, the Marbella chef has been challenged to create a proposal with lemon as the protagonist, a fruit chosen for its acidic character and electric energy, which brings tension and balance to the pairing of the two new editions Krug Grande Cuvée 171ème and Krug Rosé 27ème. 

Conceived as a tribute to one of the most fascinating cuisines in the world, Kemuri has recently reopened its doors with a proposal that maintains its original essence, but elevates it to the highest exponent. It is a place to savour millenary Japan without looking at the clock in search of Umami; the place of the izakaya, where you are invited to stay, and where you will find traditional Japanese cuisine combined with Mediterranean flavours. 

Using seasonal, high-quality products, the space offers a unique experience centred on the omakase or trust in the chef. Thus, in the main space there is a large bar, where the itamae or head chef forms part of the diner’s experience, who will place himself in the hands of the chef in order to be able to taste his proposal. A beautiful Japanese tradition that Dani García has wanted to maintain in Kemuri for the surprise and enjoyment for those who decide to trust him.

With a capacity for up to 14 people, it is the first restaurant concept that Dani García has dedicated to Japanese cuisine, paying homage to friends and colleagues such as chef Nobu Matsuhisa. In short, an exclusive space designed to offer a unique experience in an incomparable setting.
